graduating students of the academy of art university in san francisco debuted their collections at new york fashion week this past friday. the academy of art is the first and only school to show at new york fashion week; where they first appeared two seasons ago. it gives me even more confidence to know that the school i'm attending is the only art/design school to ever showcase their work in front of fashion's elite. as if showing their pieces at new york fashion week wasn't enough for these graduates; they managed to have 'it models' display their works of art. anja rubik, karlie kloss, chanel iman, and edythe hughes graced their presence on the runway. aau has an annual fashion show during the spring that i have been attending since i was a junior in highschool. the energy and expensive lighting that fills the tent in san francisco is appealing, and i can only imagine how it may seem in new york. every collection that i have viewed has never disappointed, and this week in new york is no exception.
